John Michael Godier is joined by Avi Loeb to talk about his latest project, the Copernicus Space Corporation. The Massachusetts-based, privately owned space exploration firm “Copernicus” encourages ultra-long-term thinking and uses disruptive technologies to develop fresh human space tactics. Avi also talks about the Galileo Project and its efforts to find UAP scientifically. Is it possible to pick up gravity wave transmissions from extraterrestrial civilizations?
It’s a question that’s plagued humanity for centuries: are we alone in the universe? Or are there other intelligent, technologically advanced beings out there, just waiting to make contact with us?
Well, here’s the thing: it seems pretty unlikely that we’re the only intelligent life forms in the entire universe. I mean, seriously, how egocentric would that be? Just because we happen to be the most advanced species on our little rock floating through space, that doesn’t mean we’re the only ones out there.
In fact, there are a few reasons why it’s highly probable that the universe is teeming with extraterrestrial life.
First of all, there are billions and billions of planets out there. And with such a huge number of potential habitats, it seems unlikely that we’re the only ones who managed to evolve into intelligent, self-aware beings.
Secondly, even if the conditions for life are relatively rare, there’s still a pretty good chance that some of those other planets have life on them. After all, we’ve only explored a tiny fraction of the universe, and we’ve already found a number of planets that could potentially support life.
Finally, even if the conditions for life are incredibly rare, it’s possible that some of those other intelligent life forms have figured out how to travel between the stars. Maybe they’ve even found a way to colonize other planets and spread their species across the galaxy.
So there you have it: it’s highly probable that the universe is full of aliens. Who knows, maybe one of them is even reading this article right now and laughing at our primitive understanding of the cosmos. But hey, at least we can all agree that space is pretty cool, right?
